This is definitely something I didn't realize I needed until I owned it.

I didn't want to break the glow stick for the photos but I can't wait to see this in the pool. (By the way, we don't have a pool but my DIL's parents do and they live across the street. My granddaughters love swimming and I'm sure they will have fun with this!)

Hello and happy Thankful Friday! This week I'm thankful for the fact that I don't have to do all the things when I come home from work. What I mean is all the dinner cooking, cleaning and general housekeeping items. I'm glad we can eat leftovers, go out to eat or have meals delivered.
After returning home after two weeks of being away, I just wanted to relax when I got home from work. Between my hubby and daughter and Door Dash, I didn't have to cook once this week!
And I am thankful for THAT!
How about you? What are you thankful for this week? Please share in the comments.

I went to my local Dollar Tree and found some simple binder pencil pouches and thought they would be perfect. When you have a Cricut, you are always on the lookout for inexpensive blanks and these certainly fit the bill. I bought two. 😄

It's not too bad since I "sort of" cleaned the general work area to work on the zippered case. (I'll be posting a YouTube video soon on this project.) I added patterned vinyl on it and plan on using this Dollar Tree purchase as a purse organizer. My big tote of a purse was getting so messy & full, it needed some sort of organizer. I didn't take a before photo...but here's the after:

I am so excited about the current challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) Cricut challenge site. The challenge theme is recycle. Now, I feel like I'm always recycling but then I realized, I don't think I'm actually recycling - I think I'm upcycling!
So the way I understand it is that recycling is using something bound for the trash & using it a whole new way and upcycling is basically giving something an updo. Is that right? What's your opinion on this? Does it even really matter? LOL Either way, it's fun!
Well, it took awhile to figure out my recycling project for the current challenge and this is what I came up with:
- Remove the label from the jars
- Create a mixture of Mod Podge & food coloring to get the color you want (I used gloss Mod Podge and red & yellow food coloring to make orange)
- Pour the glue mixture into the jars and swirl around until you get full coverage
- Turn the jars upside down to drip out the excess glue; let dry overnight
- Once dry, use multiple Halloween images in Design Space* to create the pumpkin faces & words with black vinyl
- Wipe the outside of the jars with alcohol before adding the vinyl
- Decorate the jar rims with fabric scraps or twine like I did
- Drop a battery operated tea light in & enjoy!

I brought along some crafty supplies and my sis has some supplies here too. I had some downtime and decided to make (and film) a mixed media tag. I started out thinking I was going to make a card, but it turned into a tag and I just love it!
Check out the process video here - you even get to see me on this one!

Happy TGIF Thankful Friday on Saturday! Sorry I missed posting this yesterday but I'm visiting my sister and mom in Tucson, Arizona. It's hot over here and humid. Whatever happened to the "it's a dry heat"? LOL It's rained most nights but has cooled down at night and by that I mean, cooled to the 90's versus the 100+ during the day.
Don't get me wrong, I love it which is what I'm thankful for this week...visiting family, relaxing, and getting a pedicure!

July 1st!?! Can you believe it? This year is going by so quickly. It's time for a new monthly challenge on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog (LTSCB). This month it's...Anything Goes. In fact, it's Anything Goes every other month on the LTSCB.
My stamping project is this stunning spanner panel card. I learned how to make it from one of my favorite YouTube channel's, Lisa's Stamp Studio.
I love the way it turned out - so bright and colorful!
LTSCB by the end of the month.
